Swiss manufacturer Bystronic’s first large-format, high-powered laser cutting machine was installed recently in Malaysia to Leon Fuat Metal Sdn. Bhd., earning it the title of first 15kW ByStar Fiber 8025 in Asia.
“As a steadfast brand advocate for Bystronic, Leon Fuat’s new investment will empower it to become a major player in the industry,” Bystronic told ISMR.
Chinhan Ooi, general manager of Bystronic Malaysia and south-east Asia sales director, confirmed: “This milestone not only signifies an important, strategic starting point in the APAC region, but also marks huge potential in Malaysia for sales of Bystronic high-powered solutions. We are especially proud to announce that Leon Fuat Group, who previously owned mainly CO2 laser cutting systems from another manufacturer, has selected Bystronic for its business transformation.”
